Alright, fellow cannabis lovers, 420 is here and we’re all set to celebrate. Which means it’s time to stock up on our favourite strains and the best munchies. Lucky for you, we’ve got the low down on both.

In typical 420 fashion, we’ve been on the hunt for great new strains to smoke on this special day of the year (& beyond). Right on cue, Alberta-born Spiritleaf has launched Spiritleaf Selects, a new in-house brand featuring specially selected cannabis cultivars inspired by what they love to smoke.

Just in time for 420, Spiritleaf has launched its inaugural Spiritleaf Selects strain French Toast #1, which is now in-stores for purchase. We already know that Spiritleaf is home to high-quality cannabis, and the same authenticity and quality are exactly what you can expect with Spiritleaf Selects.

Recommended and developed in collaboration with their trusted and knowledgeable Cannabis Concierges, Spiritleaf Selects French Toast #1 is an Alberta grown hybrid strain with uplifting and balanced effects. The flower has a creamy and earthy flavour with hints of maple syrup, brought to you by its terpene profile of myrcene, caryophyllene, and limonene.

And lucky for us, French Toast #1 is now available at Spiritleaf stores across Edmonton. It comes packed in a fully recyclable  amber glass jars (3.5 grams per jar) to protect the bud and is sealed with a humidity pack to ensure freshness. With a smooth and sweet taste, French Toast #1 is just the bud to pair with some seriously tasty munchies. 

That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of our fave local Edmonton eats to take care of all your 420 munchies.  Now the question is… with the dessert-like notes of French Toast #1, do you eat your dessert before dinner? We say yes. So grab your Spiritleaf Selects French Toast #1 and enjoy our round up of our fave sweet, salty and indulgent munchies. 

K CORN DOGS FROM GANGNAM STREET FOOD

When struggling to fend off the munchies look no further than a C-Dog, especially a spicy Korean one. In case you’re not familiar with ‘em, let us put you onto your new obsession. Think hot dogs or mozzarella cheese coated in batter (or crispy potatoes) and deep fried to perfection.

FRIED CHICKEN FROM NORTHERN CHICKEN

‘Cause nothing can cure a stoner craving quite like a piece  (or 10) of spicy, crispy chicken. And if your stomach is actually as big as your eyes, we’d suggest you add some corn fritters n’ biscuit to go with it.

Whoever said pineapples aren’t for pizzas had clearly never had this sweet-n-spicy awesomeness with a buzz.

THE TACO FROM LA POUTINE

Something about this Canadian comfort food just makes it so much more craveable Especially when it combines our love of tacos and poutines into one incredible dish. 

HONEY SRIRACHA CHICKEN FROM LOADED PIEROGI

When your palate needs the whole spectrum of flavours, from sweet to hot and everything in between. Think roasted chicken tossed in sweet & spicy sriracha honey sauce, cheese, caramelized onions, crispy jalapenos, and creamy garlic sriracha to top it off. Drooling yet?

We can’t think of a bad time to enjoy a delicious ice cream sandwich. But satisfying our munchies with one seems like an extra good time. These toasted pandesal ice cream sandwiches come with our choice of scoop! 

THE 10-HOUR SPICY GOMA FROM TOKIWA RAMEN

You can never go wrong with house-made ramen but this Spicy Goma version with nikumiso (chopped pork) and chili oil drizzle truly hits different.

HALF DOZEN PACK FROM DOUGHNUT PARTY

We can’t think of a better party than a doughnut party when stoned. So that’s exactly why a half dozen pack from Doughnut Party is a great play for when the sweet tooth cravings kick in. From Cookie Beer to Vancouver Fog to Classic Dip- you can’t go wrong.

CHIMI CHIMI BURGER FROM EL CARAZON

There’s nothing like a dope grilled beef patty burger to take care of a serious case of the munchies. Especially when said beef patty is served with latin pickled cabbage, topped with dominican chimichurri slaw, and served on a sesame seed kaiser bun.

You didn’t think we’d leave french toast off this menu, did you? Especially not one that’s made with a cinnamon bun and topped with berry compote and crème fraîche. We can’t think of a better pairing for Spiritleaf Selects strain French Toast #1.
